ü Living with a Host Family!!!!
Home stays Experience can be the most rewarding part of a world travel volunteer, work, internship or research. We have designed the home stay to be very individually, couple, groups, students friendly. A home stay experience is a valuable opportunity to improve your versity knowledge about culture, country and improve a language skill by immersing yourself in a situation where communication in English or local Languange is a MUST BETWEEN The tourist and Host family! You will eat most of your meals with your host family and sleep in their home. You will not be isolated with your family as you will be with the whole family activities/work during most days to work on a project or head out on a excursion. If you are a student, researcher or an intern, On weekends, you will spend a majority of the time with your host family doing activities that they enjoy sharing with you. Many evenings you will find yourself getting together with other, students, leaders and the home stay families to participate in various social activities.
While there is no typical home stay experience, Many people will stay in touch with their host families for years to come.
One thing certain- the home stay is bound to be the most wonderfully dramatic and memorable part of the trip. Each year our clients shall reflect on their home stay as the best part of their trip.
